for coverage of republican presidential candidate mitt romney. you speaking this point at the clinton global initiative, an annual meeting of global leaders seeking solutions to international problems. mitt romney will be introduced by former president bill clinton and so. it is expected to get started shortly and we will have a live for you on c-span2. until then highlights of the august session of question time in the australian parliament. ♪ >> hello, i'm david with some highlights of the last sitting of the australian parliament. one of the issues that is been talking the labor, here in australia is asylum-seekers. they been coming in record numbers on leaky boats and some sadly have been drowning at sea trying to get here. the government has been under a lot of pressure from the opposition to take a tougher policy to deter votes from making history. finally, the government act down and embraced the opposition's policy. after it was recommended by an expert panel. i asylum-seekers will now be sent to the tiny pacific country of not move and an island. have the claims process. rather th
. at the same time, during the clinton years, we had marginal rates that were a little bit higher than they are now and we had some of the best economic times that the country has ever seen. that is what i'm talking about. my concern for the country is that all of this heat has been generated around this issue instead of light and analysis and a sober look at the role that every american play, should play in strengthening our country. that is the concern i have in the long run. >> i want to pick up mr. cruz's suggestion that the economy is in trouble from -- is in trouble. texas has endured. but san antonio has had a tough couple of years. the census bureau report brought these numbers appeared between 2009 and 2011, unemployment in san antonio went up by more than a full point. needed household income has gone down. you know how tough the economy is. you're leaving a city that has been bearing some of the brunt. can you talk about that? few dispute that the economy is in a world of hurt? whoever's responsibility that is. >> i think every american would say that the economy is not wher
penalties and to pinocchio's for the counter spin. also in particular the way that president clinton spoke about at the convention. so it's a complex subject and one of the reasons i didn't think romney would necessary bring it up himself into debates is because it would allow for a very muddy back and forth between the two men. i think and debate your most effective if you can make a clean shot. and resonate with voters. to my predictions, romney will repeat his claim that obama got $700 billion from medicare. now, during the primaries the republicans used to claim that obama fund his health care plan with $500 billion in cuts. so how did it balloon to $700 billion? is a simple explanation to the congressional budget office over the summer issued a new asset based on a different and later tenure timeline. and so republicans decided to take the biggest number possible. but medicare spending does not mean it is being reduced to in the $700 billion figure comes from the different over 10 years between anticipated medicare spending, what is known as the baseline, and changes to laws made to r
the gain a downscale and the democratic cannot scale to the point where under clinton the lines converged and ran and won the college nights and on college 36, obama, seven and today in the polling is nine or ten. i would argue that obama wins the class conversion is going to have to get brighter. what this has done is produce an environment in which for all the numbers we are talking about, the obama formula victory can be produced at just to members of mabey effort on the side to the and to what 80% of the nonwhite voters in zero age, not just that in 2012 and they represent at least 26% they did last time in the 40% of whites. and in fact as we were saying, the internal composition of the white vote is changing in a way that makes it more accessible for him to get their. for me you have to look not only get education but gender and basically creates the four quadrants. if you look at 08, the college white men, non-mccaul which white men and women, obama was 42 or below. he will drop in all three of those. the numbers are consistently running a little lower than they did. the college-ed
candidate mitt romney spoke at an annual global development conference hosted by bill clinton. he spoke about the recent attack on the american consulate in libya. here is a look. >> for american foreign aid to be more effective if it has got to embrace the principles that you see in these global initiatives. the power of partnerships, access to the trans formative nature of free enterprise and no leverage of the abundant resources that come in the private sector. i believe there are three legitimate object of foreign aid in this country. first is to address humanitarian needs such as the case of medical treatment to millions suffering from hiv aids. second is to foster a substantial united states strategic interests. perhaps military or diplomatic or economic. third is another purpose and one that i think has to receive much more attention and higher priority. in a romney administration and that is aid that elevates people and brings about lasting change in communities and nations. here is an example. a lot of americans including myself are troubled by developments in the middle east.
similar things as a senator against senator clinton pushing the stop hillary campaign. some of it might just be sports or competitive rhetoric, but that's not what it's going to take to fix washington. we need bridge builders and people who find commonground. that's what's missing in congress now, and we need people in place with a dmon -- demonstrated track record and able to do it. >> tim, you pick out certain quotes from me, and i'll share with quotes with the people about the records of service. the washington post, rarely says anything good about republicans, said this about my service as governor, quote, "while some republicans hold alouisiana applause, and the general assembly, the fact is governor allen is markettedly successful in generating business investment in virginia. the virginia education association said our education budget was the best they'd seen in a number of years. senators clinton and wyden, and carey, we worked together. they publicly stated how we worked together on issues whether it's health screenings of newborn children or expanding access to broadband, and
research on the 990 has taught us one thing which is that hillary clinton was right when she said in 1990 whenever that there is a vast right wing conspiracy. there is also a left-wing conspiracy. and on this light you can see the larger network of groups, the conservative network. and the smaller network is the liberal network, at least what we have been able to find. again, this is not a complete picture. this is -- this particular slide is something we worked on with newsweek and the daily beast recently. and if you go online and find this graphic, it is interactive. you can click on any of the little dots and see what groups those are. it is a great, great little thing. one thing you notice is that a lot of the arrows are going in both directions, so groups give money, they get money. the center to protect patients' rights is kind of a big mayor center there. you will see pharma at the top, which actually gives to both sides which kind of reflects the business philosophy to kind of play it safe. but a lot of these groups on both sides are giving to each other. sloshing the money aroun
else. this is math. president clinton said it. this is arithmetic, and we can take that money that we are spending, $225,000 per year and spend the copley to get teachers that want to come into the profession. about that difficult, hard work. at the end of the day, it's marginal. it is symbolic. it's about like a child in the family, and it's about those who need to do their homework. that's not what makes the difference. it is the expectation that they will do their homework and they will not show up the next day without it. >> hold on for second, let's get the microphone. >> hello, i work for in metropolitan detroit. i would like to talk about something regarding not being able to cut your way to excellence. it is really good teacher but a pilot program, but when we are talking about taking the success and charter and making it large-scale, rolling it over to a public school, how do you get the best teachers and how do you motivate the teachers who are already in the system. i would like for either one of you to address that. >> it is a very contentious five-day training program and
've seen out of the republicans this campaign season. >> did a lot of them come out of the clinton administration? did they have a lot of experience in that? >> there were a number, but there have been more. i think we have seen a generational development in the bench. some people who did not serve in the clinton administration are serving in senior positions here. i think that they are smart, i think they understand how to play as a team, they understand how to listen, and they get along with each other. and i think in part that's because you don't have the right wingers versus the nationalists versus the elder statesman. you have a generation whose views have been formed by the realities of of the 21st centur, and i think you're seeing that reflected not just in president obama, but in the team that supports him. >> yeah. the way i like to put it is that president obama has the appeal of a reluctant warrior, which is what most americans are. if we have to go to war, we will. and he has shown that he will use force when it's necessary, but he's a reluctant warrior. reluctant warri
it with welfare benefits however this time abacus joined by governors congress and the clinton administration agreed that a significant infusion of new childcare funds were necessary if low-income women were going to face increase work requirements. this led to a second version of the senate bill that included a 4 billion-dollar increase in childcare funds over five years. the tanf bill included a provision that allowed some tanf funding to be transferred to ccpg. it was absolutely clear in that debate that most of the low-income women expected to work were not going going to earn enough to pay for childcare. this is still true. the battle over quality was eliminated. the governors leading the welfare discussion and many republicans in in the house wanted to completely eliminate the minimum standards in the quality set aside. after a long fight we wanted bipartisan support. maintain both that we lost the requirement in the market rate. there was no meaningful discussion of improvement over those two years. with these new funds in additional funding later in the clinton administration states
clinton and i will ever worked closely together and then barbara bush was refrained in the fifth son. [laughter] now he works with president george w. bush as well. at that time i was interviewing president bush is when i was doing a series of pieces on the president and the constitution and the same set of interviews i interviewed president ford and its the last time i saw hampshire and he said you know, i want to see what's going on in washington after his years in the house of representatives. when i was gonna norti lever of the house and you're father, my father was the majority leader of the house he said when we were a minority and majority leader they go down to feed press club or something and solomon say willie going to argue about clarke's piece said there's a legitimate d date. we genuinely disagree about the means to an end. and it was partisan. for heaven's sake we were the leaders of the party but then we get back and our best friends and go back to the hill and are able to be civil with each other, have a drink together and be very good friends. they were such good fri
because hillary clinton is a political figure and a figure who is not as intensely disliked by kind of less affluent republicans i think. she's someone with a very distinctive political identity. >> i think the basic question will be is there a voice that says the party has to change direction, try to reach a broader range of voters. particularly minority voters. and does that debate -- certainly there are no shortages of candidates. brian. christie i think is kind of the voice from the bleacher shtick did not scale up, and i think kind of ralph cram them kind of running for president didn't look as good in tampa. i think he would have to retool to be sure but i think daniels, ryan, different ways, i think the bigger question is, is there something come is there a candidate to advance his agenda pushed analysis if romney loses. it's not guaranteed romney will lose. obama after three great weeks is at 50 so it's not like he is at 54 with a big margin of error. that if romney doesn't lose, i think the big question will be is there someone who kind of challenges the party on issues, pa
, and let me quote president clinton, it takes an awful lot of breast to so much accuse me of doing something they have done twice. >> moderator: senator heller? heller: i never heard so and give an answer what they said they didn't do it and then said they did in the same spell. the of the year, continue to tell the light of your even with confidence. is still the light of the year. she talks about the ryan budget. she talks to bring it to the fore. all it wants is -- and when are the ryan budget was going to pass. what we need is a democrat budget. we couldn't get a democrat budget out of the united states center. we couldn't get the majority leader to have a budget hearing. couldn't happen. i don't feel like have to explain this to my own opponent. bunch of republican budget, a democrat budget and you bring them together and you solve the issues. that's my goal. i want solutions. but you can have solutions if one side is not going to talk. >> moderator: thank you. diego has the next question. he will attest to congresswoman congresswoman shelley berkley. >> in january 2007, the t
